-The royal baby boy has arrived! I will never get over the protocol of having to pose for photos so quickly after the birth. This is Kate just SEVEN HOURS after delivery!
-But when it comes to birth announcements that made me teary, Dwayne Johnson won the day with this Instagram post. He welcomed his second daughter with girlfriend Lauren Hashian.
–Sarah Jessica Parker is still trying to sell us on SATC’s happy set vibe. When asked by Vulture about any resolution with Kim Cattrall, she said “I’d just like to remind everybody that there is no catfight. I have never uttered an unkind, unsupportive, unfriendly word, so I would love to redefine it…no, there is no catfight, there never has been a catfight. I’ve never fought with someone publicly in my life, nor would I. And I spent time with all of the women on the set. People need to recall that it wasn’t just two women on the set fighting because that just never happened.”
-We still have to wait a few weeks for the royal wedding, but here’s a clip from Meghan Markle’s TV wedding. (I know the guy who plays the DJ!)
-Remember that TV Line blind item a couple of weeks ago about a TV drama that should be a sure bet for renewal, except the lead actor’s terrible behaviour was jeopardizing its chances? Turns out it’s about Lethal Weapon’s Clayne Crawford. A Deadline reporter says “I have learned that Crawford has had a history of bad behavior on the show, and that he has been disciplined several times over complaints of emotional abuse and creating a hostile environment. I hear the issue has escalated to a point where other actors as well as crew on Lethal Weapon would feel uncomfortable being on set with him.” TV Line reports that Fox is thinking of recast him — possibly with a woman.
-Speaking of bad behaviour in TV, Brad Kern is not only still running NCIS: NOLA, his contract is reportedly going to be renewed by CBS. All despite the fact he’s been investigated multiple times for HR violations, according to Variety. Swell!
-Jesus, Shania Twain really stepped in it this weekend with an interview in the Guardian in which she said she would have voted Trump because “he seemed honest.” She took to Twitter to retract/apologize but the damage was done.
–Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington are submitting for leads instead of supporting at the Emmys. They aren’t going to win either way, but this doesn’t help.
-I always preferred weekend 2 of Coachella. It has a more laidback vibe and the people who are there just to take Instagram photos have already left. Unfortunately it doesn’t live stream, so we missed Beyonce’s new wardrobe and Ariana Grande‘s surprise performance.
-This clip about Supergirl saving her favourite shirt before going on a mission addresses a lot of problems I have with superhero shows.
–James Corden is doing a Carpool Karaoke primetime special tonight and did a whole Bruno Mars-inspired music video for it.
–Universal FanCon was cancelled abruptly this weekend when organizers confirmed that they didn’t have enough money to cover the convention’s costs, and the way they’ve handled it is the biggest PR mess I’ve ever seen.
-Speaking of things that whipped fandoms into a frenzy this weekend, a reporter called out an Avengers actor for treating him badly on the junket (he has since deleted the tweets, but before he did he confirmed that it wasn’t Josh Brolin or Dave Bautista.) Whoever it is, Jessica Chastain knows!
–Amy Adams sees dead people in the creepy Sharp Objects trailer, HBO’s new miniseries based on Gillian Flynn’s book.
-It’s been a rough day in Toronto. I have comforted myself by watching the Crazy Rich Asians trailer an embarrassing amount of times. I’m not even sorry. This looks AMAZING!
